Flights, for example, are relatively cheap to buy but planes produce very high carbon emissions. Until new aircraft arrives, flights will, unfortunately, remain one of the most significant contributors to the issue of climate change.
So, how can we all travel in an eco-friendlier way? We’ve gathered some ideas for you below.
If you love exploring the great outdoors, finding new places of interest, and taking part in treasure hunts, then geocaching could be the hobby for you. Play alone, with friends, or with your whole family — people of all ages love this pastime.

Luckily, there are a number of ways to enjoy a holiday while keeping your environmental impact to a minimum.
